This is probably not a big issue for people and understandably but is there a reason why the NHL hasn't added an All-NHL 3rd team to the end of year all star selections? Or why they haven't moved it to just having 3 forwards instead of LW-C-RW?

Seems if the purpose is to create an accurate picture of who were the important guys in the league you'd have to have a way to genuinely do that. As it stands, if they vote by virtue of listed positiosn, one of Draisaitl or Stamkos(I'm assuming McDavid and Matthews are locks for the two spots at Centre) won't be on the league end all-star team but someone like Mikko Rantanen or Patrick Kane will be.

L K:
Comparing it to Al the NBA selection you have 3 teams for 15 players.  Rosters have 15 players.

I’m surprised you don’t have 12 forwards, 6 defensemen and two goaltenders
